Eh. Skins aren't cutting it for me anymore. They need something big to wow me.

Well for one thing, it was the first Legendary Skin, as far as I know. They've gotten much better sicne then. They've talked about sprucing it up, but they have a lot of other things to do and have to prioritize. *shrug*

For another thing, none of the skins are worth the money when you really think about it. They're primarily bragging rights. If you just want to see the skin on YOUR comp, that's easily doable for free. But if you want the world to see that you spent $20 on a legendary skin, does it really matter if it's extra sparkly or not?

Toboggan Corki was the first legendary skin for purchase.

At the time the high bar for skins was an extensive remodel. Since then they've raised the bar, and have set base standards for legendary, but have so far not gone back to TF, though they have said they are considering options. Its just not top priority compared to new content.

If I counted correctly, there are sixty-eight 520 skins and eighty-six 975 RP skins.

Six months ago the discrepancy would have been very different....

I was curious, my friend plays Zilean a lot, and does the Old St. Zilean skin place presents instead of bombs for his time bomb ability. We haven't been able to find a screenshot anywhere, and if they ever release the skin again, he wants to buy it for no other reason than...presents! lol.
